Disaster struck during a party at a university event on Saturday night, when a floor collapsed under dozens of party-goers in SC.

Tal Slann, President of Woodlands Management of Clemson, Inc., sent an email to residents Sunday morning.

Clemson University sophomore Larissa Stone told Greenville News that it happened very quickly. I stood up, and everyone was trying to climb out. "It was just a shocking moment for everyone", he continued, adding that he saw some people "crying" and "bleeding".

As many as 30 people were injured in the incident and taken to the hospital for various injuries, according to TMZ.

No individuals were trapped during the collapse and it's unclear if anyone suffered life-threatening injuries, police said.

The apartment complex is three miles northeast of Clemson University.

"We started jumping, and we just - boom! - all you seen was black", Franzie Pendergrass, who was at the party and managed to record footage of the floor collapsing, told WYFF, the local NBC affiliate. Check back for updates.

A party at Clemson University took a turn for the worse when the floor of an apartment collapsed under the feet of dozens of college students.

And all those people getting close to the edge and filming instead of helping, or you know, leaving the collapsed floor... uh, OK?!

30 people were split between 3 hospitals with broken bones and lacerations.

According to Chief Dixon, none of the injuries appear life-threatening. "The clubhouse will be inspected by structural engineers as soon as possible".
